News from James Houston Turner, author of the Talanov series! Can't Wait for the Movie!

The headline of our latest press release about Greco’s Game could not have excited me more: David Marconi to Direct Wonderfilm's Screen Adaptation of James Houston Turner's Action Novel, Greco's Game!

You have definitely seen some his films: 
Enemy of the State (Will Smith and Gene Hackman), Live Free or Die Hard (Bruce Willis), and, most recently, The Foreigner (Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan). When it comes to screenwriters, they don’t get any better than David Marconi.

But the good news does not end there, for Mr. Marconi has not only written the Greco's Game screenplay with the help of William J. MacDonald (The Saint, with Val Kilmer, Rome, and Sliver), but he will also be directing the film!!! Here’s what he had to say about Greco’s Game: “Talanov is such a rich and nuanced character, and the novel’s plot is so timely with what is going on in our world, I had to jump in to direct this film.”

  1. What a wonderful surprise to see this, "Agent Bixler". Thank you!!! I just read the first draft of the script and it was fantastic. I heard from someone recently who read November Echo and they loved the Bixler character. So full of sauce and spunk. You're an inspiration.
